Samsung steels itself for Twittering yoof touchphone release

Presenting the... er... Corby

Remote control for virtualized desktops

Samsung will launch a new yoof-centric mobile phone later this month. The handset shares a moniker with a former Northamptonshire steel town.

Samsung said the Corby will sport a 2.8in, 320 x 240 touchscreen and provide access to users' Facebook, Twitter and MySpace accounts.

There's no HSDPA or even 3G: the Corby goes to the Edge but no further.

Samsung's Corby: designed for the Twittering yoof of Britain

The company claimed Corby is "notable for both its body design and colours – which mark a significant break from the way full touch phones are usually designed". It will be offered available in a selection of "bold" colour options such as "Jamaican Yellow", "Cupid Pink", "Minimal White" and "Festival Orange".

As to why Samsung decided the small town of Corby warranted memorialising through a mobile phone, we can only guess. But we can't wait to see what they do with Towcester...

Samsung said the Corby will go on sale across Europe around the middle of the month. It will retail for around €150 (£107/$221). ®
